What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are used as a substitute for the roots of a tooth that is missing. Used to support dentures, bridge, or most typically, crowns, the implants are inserted into your jawbone through minor surgery. Typically, dental implants provide a more natural and secure feeling than other teeth replacement methods like dentures.

While you might be somewhat wary of this type of procedure at first, there are numerous reasons why you will want to have your missing teeth replaced. First, when a tooth is missing, the jawbone around that missing tooth will start to dissolve, and implants help to keep the jawbone’s original shape. Secondly, missing teeth can affect your ability to chew, and in fact, can affect what foods you can eat. Next, your bite can be affected by the loss of teeth, and this can lead to jaw joint problems including TMJ, or lockjaw. Finally, lost teeth can lead to aesthetic changes and speech changes that affect your self-confidence. However, having your teeth replaced can work to fix all of these issues.

There are many types of implants: mini, subperiosteal, and root-form. The most common dental implant is by far the root-form. In this type of implant, a small titanium screw or cylinder is implanted into the jawbone, and then an abutment (a metal cylinder) is attached. Next, the crown, bridge, or denture is affixed to the abutment.

While Zara Dental offers many payment options for dental implants, they can be more expensive than dentures or bridges. However, in the long run, this expense might just pay off since you might not require an implant for each and every tooth that you are missing. Other benefits of dental implants include the convenience of not having to put in and take out your dentures on a regular basis, the more natural feel of implants over dentures, the ability to chew better than one might with dentures, and the self-esteem and lack of worry over whether or not your dentures might come unstuck while you are in public.
